Backup to Gmail

Backup to Gmail


With Google phone, you can sync your Gmail, Contacts, Calendar, Picasa Albums with Google's Service.

But how about your SMS, MMS and Call log?

Backup to Gmail can help you to backup SMS, MMS and Call log to Gmail labels automatically.

You can also restore SMS and Call log from Gmail to any android device.

Remember to enable IMAP in Gmail and set the correct time/zone.

"communication error..." error message during first connect? Please double check your Gmail account setup.

Some droid X/2 users: due to a timezone bug of motorola's firmware, incoming messages might not be backed up.

XOAuth might not work when you are signed up for 2-step verification. In this case you need to create an application-specific password and enable plain text authentication in preference. Use the username and password you created.

This worked for my Droid Maxx with no problems at all. However, I got a new phone yesterday, the Droid Turbo and it keeps crashing on restoring my SMS and Call Logs. Is there an update for this in the near future? The message I get is "Unfortunately, Backup to Gmail has stopped." I'd like to be able to restore all of my SMS's, Call Log, etc. It;s on Android Lollipop. Please HELP!

Used to be great, but since 28th April 2015, emails no longer contain content-type: text/plain & charset=utf-8 parameters in the headers . The result is that emails display perfectly in gmail, but are incorrectly formatted in other clients such as thunderbird.

Needs work now! I have had this ap for at least a year. It WAS great. I don't care for the splitting of messages into mms and sms, because it divides a single conversation into two folders if i add a simple emoticon. Makes it very awkward to try and patch together later. And now I'm repeatedly getting the "error in communication" message, though sometimes it just decides to work. That tells me it's a problem with the ap, not the gmail settings. Fix it. Please. I want this to go back to an awesome ap.
